Camp Weequahic, a co-ed residential summer camp in Northeast Pennsylvania, is looking for enthusiastic, fun loving and qualified individuals that can help create a fantastic summer experience for our campers while earning internship credit. This position is for people that are hard-working, dedicated, and love to work with children. Counselors serve in a dual role, both living with children and teaching in one or more activity areas.
We hire student athletes to coach all of our land and water sports at Weequahic. Interns will gain experience in creating training plans and executing them while building management skills. Interns will earn over 140 hours of supervised field experience while working at Weequahic. Coaches are needed for soccer, baseball, basketball, gymnastics, tennis, golf, roller hockey, lacrosse, waterski/wakeboard, dance, fitness, and lots more!
We promise that this will not be your typical internship. Interning at Camp Weequahic is an awesome opportunity to gain hands-on experience, all while making a difference in the life of a child and have a ton of fun doing it! If you think you could be a positive role model, teach something you love, and are thrilled by the prospect of meeting hundreds of new friends from around the world while getting paid and earning internship credits, we would love for you to apply.
Our dates for this summer are June 16- August 9, and our first year counselors typically make $2000 salary plus a $300 travel stipend, along with room and board.
The Employee Experience:
Being a staff member at Camp Weequahic is much more than a summer job, it’s a unique experience in idyllic surroundings and an opportunity to realize your full potential as you help others realize theirs. You’ll meet people from all over the US and build a network that will last beyond just the summer. Weequahic is a community that encourages growth, teamwork, and provides professional development and ongoing feedback. We help bring out the best in our people and want you to join us!
This contract offers a competitive salary based on experience and includes travel expense reimbursement, housing, staff shirts, laundry service, three meals a day (plus snacks!) and WiFi.
During days off, staff spend their time hiking, spending a day exploring nearby Scranton–shopping or seeing a show, and taking in everything Pennsylvania has to offer. If you decide to stay on camp, staff can hang out in our staff lounge, workout in the fitness center, or use sailboats, kayaks, canoes, and stand up paddle boards on the lake or just relax on the beach at the waterfront.
